Memorial Day

This morning, I ate breakfast at a place called Bagels and More. Jewish food being served by an Asian entrepreneur who was whistling "Don't You Want Me, Baby," by British group the Human League. This was just before CNN began their broadcast of the Memorial Day ceremonies which were observed by President Barack Obama, our first African-American president, and we watched the monitors as they played the national anthem and "Taps."

Memorial Day honors those who have sacrificed their lives defending this country. I hope that they know that it was worth it. America truly is the land of opportunity.
